Description

Built for cellaring. Tense and energetic in youth. Geez this is a good wine and legacy thing. Amazing biodynamic farming. Gentle winemaking.

Tightly wound, racy, but in that frame there’s light citrusy notes, floral mouth-feel, the kiss of subtle, honeyed character, a touch of buttered toast, but the gist is acidity as frame and direction giver. There is so much going on in each sip – from unavoidable fog of floral perfume through to the lingering, piercing tang. Beautiful wine here. Long may it live as so many of this release do. 96 points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

Beautiful clarity of aromas in the grapefruit and lime-peel zone. Then abundant stony, flinty, wet rock complexity. Immensely fresh palate, this is full of life and has a very long, seamless run to a dry, flavorsome finish. 96 points James Suckling
